Biography

Sense of Scenery is a mere attempt to make sense of your surroundings. My first memory is of music (The Police) and for as long as I can remember it has remained the most sacred of things. There seems to be something highly ritualized and ancient in the human psyche or collective unconscious regarding it: its attempt to communicate features of life that there appears to be no words for; to pound out all the hurt and joy on basic tonal devices. I suppose it says, “I exist”. Sometimes it communicates something hideously complex, but most often, it doesn’t and shouldn’t.

So the title of the project came to me as I sat on my parent’s washer, stoned out of my brain in 1999.

It remained a kind of personal fantasy until early 2002. Up to this point I had played around with different projects and ideas, but SOS had always been my primary daydream. I tried to band together various people from classified ads, but when that failed, I decided to record ’Ill Fantasy’ during the winter of 2003 in the attic of a friend of a friend‘s house, of whom I was band mates with in another act called ‘Experiencing Difficulty‘. ’Ill Fantasy’ was an LP’s worth of acoustic/solo songs, released in January, 2004, of which I printed very few off; but it served its elemental purpose, which was to see if I could actually do it. I decided that I liked it, but an LP worth of crappy acoustic songs somehow wasn’t to my liking, so I immediately started writing for the ’twentyfourseven’ EP, which took almost a whole bloody year to record, and was released on December 1, 2005, although it was finished in April.
